Well, have I ever been a busy camper.

Over the past week or two I have been working rather furiously. The main reason for this is next week's Kilimanjaro hike. Thirteen year nine students, accompanied by four teachers (of whom I am one), are going to climb the mountain over six days.

I have ended up organising the trip, which has been a lot to think about. Although the main point is that I will miss a whole week of school. This has meant that I have planned the full weeks lessons in some detail. I have also completed the children's report cards quite hastily.

School just gets somewhat chaotic now and again. However, I can't argue with climbing mount Kilimanjaro for free. (I'll have to work on getting the kickbacks and slushfunds, and then it will all be just too easy.)

I shall post some interesting photos upon my return from my wander.

In the meantime, here is a picture of the continuing nonsense that is the large avocado tree in my garden. Avocados are sore if they fall on you, but now pieces of the tree have started falling under the sheer weight of fruit. Which is quite clearly rubbish.

Couldn't you pick and eat or sell the fruit? Or make them into a facial scrub or some kind of shampoo for chicks? They'll buy anything that sounds exotic...

i didn't know 'chicks' were such voracious consumers of beauty products. must be to make their feathers nice and fluffy.

My horticultural advice would be (I did study at collage for this you know) to thin out the fruits so that the tree can cope with their weight. This is done for all large fruits such a apples, pears, peaches etc.
